Windows 7: Printer port already exists

Printer port already exists

New to forum

I was trying to add an HP 1200SE printer manually by way of linksys printer server(no Win 7 updated drivers).

After configuring it, it didn't work so I attempted to redo entries. I now get a message "port already exists" after I deleted the previous install.

How do I delete the already in use port so I can start over?

Windows 7 64 bit on just acquired Z570 Lenovo laptop.

Thanks for the help
